challenge yourself for street child!

Street Child simply couldn't function without the support of incredible people raising sponsorship by participating in our events or through setting up their own.

Run, trek, jump, cycle, skip, walk, swim, sled, bungee, ski, dash, sleep, or cook; whatever you choose, challenge yourself and others to raise vital funds for Ebola orphans, or adolescent girls, and really achieve something amazing. 

By joining our team of epic runners or challengers, you will get regular personal fundraising support and access to training tips, fundraising prizes, plus a Street Child running vest to model on the day.

Here’s what we have going on in 2017/18 – if you are interested in securing your place in the following unique and memorable challenge events, both at home and overseas, email or call 510 693 4460.
